, arizona republican senator john mccain and new jersey democratic senator bob menendez. >>> then our powerhouse roundtable takes on all the week's politics, and is there really a controversy over this? ♪ and the home of the brave >> you know who caught her, lance armstrong. yeah, he is such a stickler for the truth now. >>> joining us, george will, democratic strategist donna brazile, republican congressman dave schweikert, new republic publisher and facebook co-founder chris hughes and the host of npr's "morning edition," steve inskeep. >>> hello. great to have you with us. george is off this weekend. so much to get to this morning including that controversy over the oscar-nominated film "zero dark thirty" and so-called enhanced interrogation. mark boal, the producer and screenwriter is here to answer critics. >>> but first front and center this morning, washington is set to tackle an immigration overhaul. the president is planning to speak about it on tuesday, and our two headlining senators are working on a plan as well. let's start with ranking of the armed services committee,
are working on a plan as well. let's start with ranking of the armed services committee, john mccain. welcome, senator mccain. you have spent a great deal of time in your career working on immigration issues. when do you think you can get this bipartisan plan out, and how much can you tell us about what's in it? >> well, we're going to be announcing the principles that will be guiding our translation of it into legislation. we've still got a lot of hard work ahead, but i'm very pleased with the progress. frankly -- >> you're announcing this week? >> yeah, we'll be -- senator menendez and i and senator schumer, senator graham, senator durbin and some -- we are -- we've been working together for some weeks now. we'll be coming forward. it's not that much different from what we tried to do in 2007. martha, what's changed is honestly is that there is a new i think appreciation on both sides of the aisle, including maybe more importantly on the republican side of the aisle, that we have to enact a comprehensive immigration reform bill. we've been -- >> so this is comprehensive. it's not piecemeal.
to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talking about the lack of accountability, how come nobody was fired. he said if he had been presented at time, and this is somebody who harbors ambitions, he would have relieved secretary clinton of her jobs, spe

john mccain chose a new scapegoat. >> she was, quote, feisty according to the mainstream media. she obviously has an adoring media. look, this thing has been -- it's been a cover-up. it -- i'm sorry to tell you that probably the adoring media will now say, well, that chapter is over. >> senator, don't hold it against us just because we like secretary of state hillary clinton a lot more than we like you. that's just the way it is. that was john mccain's, by the way, second appearance on fox within 12 hours. the republicans are right on track for 2016, folks. let's turn to howard fineman, nbc news political analyst and editorial director of the huffington post media group. howard, i was struck by your comment yesterday on "hardball" where you said that the hearing was the last failed shot of the 2012 election and the first failed shot of the 2016 campaign. how are the republicans doing today? >> well, i think i said it was a desperate act, but failed shot will also do. ed, i really think the emotional energy among the republicans is about their frustration at the way they lost the pre

delivery of justice that the american people want from this president. martha: as john mccain pointed out, two of those four americans died in the final hour of a seven-hour siege. there are really still a lot of questions about why not more was done and who did this. senator barrasso, thank you so much. always good to have you on the show. >> thanks, martha. bill: you wonder now if those answers will ever come public at any point. >>> phil mickelson is one of the greatest golfers in the world, taking questions on his taxes and that old fair share of his. mickelson explaining why he backed off on gripes that more than 60% of the his income goes to the government. >> my apology is, for talking about it publicly because i shouldn't take advantage of the forum that i have as a professional golfer to try to ignite change over these issues. i love this state. i grew up here. i love it here. and i'm certainly concerned for it. i never had a problem paying my fair share because, i know that there are very few countries in the world that let you do what you do and, live in this environment. bill:
remain behind the motives for the attack itself and john mccain was also critical of the secretary in his questioning. take a listen. >> people don't bring rbgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations, that's a fundamental. and of course the president continued to say days afterwards, september the 12th, maeld a reference to act of terror. september 12th, too early to know. september 20th on univision, still doing an investigation. september 24th on "the view", still doing an investigation. the president of the united states as late as september 24th, did not acknowledge that this was an act of terror. >> i would urge that you look and read both the classified and unclassified versions of the arb that deals with the questions you and senator johnson are raising the timing and the like. i also hope we're looking forward. libya is still dangerous and still in a very unstable status. >> sir, as the secretary continued to testify, she also made note to say we are in a new reality when it comes to talking about the diplomacy needed for northern africa as well as in the middle east. for libya
john mccain praised kerry. he is expected to be confirmed by the full senate. >>> new at 11:00, senator dianne feinstein banning a bill on semi assault rifles and ammunition clips nationwide. the bill strengthened her 1994 ban by banning the sale and manufacturing of 150 guns, including rifles and shotguns fitted for detachable magazines. the measure would not cover weapons people already own as well as hunting and sport and antique and disabled weapons. the senator says the goal is to quote, dry up the supply of the weapons over time. >> together, we are introducing legislation to help end the mass shootings that have devastated countless families and terrorized communities. >> feinstein got in involved in gun control when supervisor harvey milk was killed by former superior dan white. >>> and back in california, job creation and budget concerns. that is what jerry brown spoke about in the third state of the state address. this is the third time they are doing this with california in the black. we have jodi hernandez with more about the governor's address. >> reporter: good morning. go
obama's inaugural speech. senator john mccain and said there was no outreach to the g.o.p. there's no surprise that they didn't four years, but will a new congress bring a new outlook. and joining us is a freshman congressman, tom cotton, and we contacted every single freshman democrat in congress, none of them agreed to take part in the panel tonight. congressmen, welcome. what do you think of the speech. >> i was in awe, and it was shocking the speech is so liberal. yes, it's president barack obama, he's liberal. i thought some of the things are great. all americans believe in, freedom, and how do we implement that. do we need more government in our lives and spending our children into debt. how do we accomplish things. bring the adults to the table and start soming the economic problems. >> greta: what do you think. >> first the town was typical barack obama i thought. and wanted to paint his opponents as wrong, but morally wrong and doing this with paul ryan for two years, the thoughts of bugetary issues, doesn't engage in ideas calls him names and questions his motives. seco
didn't have all of those details republican senator john mccain today at this senate hearing was blistering in terms of these questions. take a listen. what was the president's activities during that seven hour period? on the anniversary of the worst attack in american history september 11th, we didn't have the department of defense forces available for seven hours. two brave americans died in the last hour. >> now, one other question that is still remains after these hearings today is whether or not the white house can claim that al qaeda has been disseminated when clearly the terrorist group is still launching attacks in northern africa and elsewhere. the secretary answered that by saying we have taken out the core leadership like usama bin laden. can you kill the leader and their affiliates just seem to keep growing, shep? >> shepard: ed henry at the white house. thanks. it looks like the u.s. government will indeed be able to keep paying the bills at least for a few more months. the house of representatives today voted to raise the debt ceiling until the middle of may. se
and senator warren and senator john mccain representing the republicans. they were all very complimentary. once kerry got talking he laid out hid world view and explained at the state department if he is confirmed he plans to be faced with a new look al qaeda. >> loosama bin laden in the document that is came out of abad bad is urging his cohorts to go to other places to get away from the airplanes, get away from the drones. he specifically encouraged al qaeda to disperse. and they did. >> iran is sure to cause headices for the next secretary of state. as the nominee for the top diplomat senator kerry makes clear he wants to do whatever it takes to keep nuclear weapons out of the country. >> i repeat here today our policy is not containment it is prevention. >> we expect to see a committee vote to confirm kerry tuesday and a full vote of the senate shortly after that. we are told that since secretary clinton is planning to stick around at the state department until february 1st a tuesday vote would allow for a smooth transition in foggy bottom. heather. >> peter doocy reporting live for u
received bipartisan praise. both secretary of state clinton and senator john mccain praised his experience and qualifications to lead america's diplomatic efforts. he said drawn-out battle in washington do harm to america and diminish our standing. he is expected to sail through confirmation hearings by the full senate. democratic lawmakers unveiled a new assault weapons ban. leading the push is california senator dianne feinstein. she said her goal is to convince her opponents that these weapons are not necessary for average citizens to own. republicans in both the house and senate are expected to strongly oppose that band. -- that ban. >> 5 of the six suspects accused in a gang rape and the subsequent death of an indian medical student made another appearance in a fast-track trial. indian authorities filed murder charges against the men after the 23-rolle victim died of massive internal injuries. they say the fast track court was needed in response to massive protest across india. a sixth suspect did not appear in court because he is said to be a minor. viewers may find this disturbing,
campaigned in terms of his broader rhetoric during the presidential campaign against john mccain on the notion he was going to transform the way the u.s. conducted its foreign policy around the world. he then proceeded to double down on some of the greatest successes of the bush administration. if you look at the use of the state secrets privilege or the with the obama administration expanded the drone wars, powered special operations forces from jsoc to join special operations command to operate in countries where the united states is not at war, if you look at the way the obama administration essentially boxed congress out of any effective oversight role of the covert aspect of u.s. foreign policy, what we really have is a president who has normalized for many, net -- many liberals, the policies they once opposed under the bush and ministration. this has been a war presidency. yesterday as president obama talked about how we don't need a state of perpetual war, multiple u.s. drone strikes in yemen, a country we are not at war with, where the u.s. has killed a tremendous number
controversial. senator john kerry is much beloved by everybody and capitol hill and even john mccain said he would endorse him. so that will go through without controversy. i think both of these men will be confirmed previously. but people don't think the secretary of defense choice is a signal maybe we will not be as aggressive as some with light in defending israel. host: that is chuck hagel. minimum wage, you expect such issues to come up? guest: first, one of the things that was most interesting about the speech yesterday, coming off a campaign that was so focused on jobs, was the relative lack of a direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. now, this was not a set of policy proposals, which woodpeck which there would be more about that in the state of the union. but it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address that he gave yesterday. as far as some of these labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the state's. i think there is a national political aspect to this. i don't know, frankly, exactly what plans they ha
. and he'll be introduced by senators john mccain, by elizabeth warren and the current secretary of state, hillary clinton. it's expected to be very different than the fiery hearing yesterday in that very same room where secretary clinton made a passionate defense to republican senators aggressive questioning about what happened in benghazi. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? it's our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator. >> i want to bring in ron, national correspondent and editorial director, and michael crowley, times deputy washington bureau chief. good morning, ron, let me start with you. i thought the hearing yesterday had so many fascinating moments to it. should be very different today, don't you think? >> yeah. that was probably the best moment you pulled out there. that was secretary clinton being forceful, showing some accountability,
by u.s. intelligence officials. just don't tell that to senator john mccain. he may have to switch his anger button to off. >> the american people deserve to know answers and they certainly don't deserve false answers. the answers given to the american people on september 15th by the ambassador of the united nations were false. >> john: that's mccain still trying to win the respect of his own party. they were even more incensed over rice's alleged efforts to mislead the american public during an election year, no less to no apparent logical reason. >> again, we were misled there was supposedly protest and then something sprang out of that. an all the sprang out of that. that was easily ascertainable. that was not the fact and the american people could have known that for days. >> with all due respect the fact is we had four dead americans. whether it was because of a protest or because guys out for a walk and they decided to go kill some americans. what difference at this point does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent from ever happeni
be sending gifts to the muslim brotherhood? senator john mccain has thoughts on that next. >> steve: a group of guys suing subway because their foot longs a little short. 11 inches. are they justified or jerks? do you really need the extra inch? e-mail us. >> brian: why didn't i get jalapenos on my turkey sandwich last night? i'm still trying to figure it out. >> alisyn: fox business alert now. labor department just releasing brand-new weekly jobless claims. 330,000 first-time unemployment claims were filed last week. that is less than the week before, brian. and less than expected. >> steve: moving in the right direction. let's bring in senator john mccain. he joins us from capitol hill. >> good morning. >> steve: it looks like fewer people are out of work, or they've given up looking. what do you make of that number? >> i think it's obviously some improvement. however slight. but i don't think anyone would disagree that the economy continues to stumble along. there are some good signs out there. the housing market for the first time is really showing some significant improvement. i think i
, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don't bring rpgs and mortars to spontaneous demonstrations. here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. >> but the harshest criticism of all came from paul legacy, senator rand paul, whose ambitions and disrespect seem to know no bounds. >> i'm glad you're accepting responsibility, i think ultimately with you leaving you're accepting responsibility for the worst tragedy since 9/11, and i really mean that. had i been president at the time and found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have removed you from your post. >> it felt senator dick durbin to remind the chamber about actual failures and coverups. >> i do want to make one point for the record here about whether the american people are told everything right away, in the right way, so that they can be fully informed, and i'd like to refer to five words for them to reflect on, "ir
information. >> ifill: republican john mccain pressed clinton on why u.s. consular staff evacuated from libya to germany weren't questioned sooner. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors, who were flown to ramstein the next day, that they-- that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say that it's because an investigation was going on-- the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. so here we are, four months later, and we still don't have the basic information. now, if you want to go out and tell the american people what happened, you should at least have interviewed the people who were there instead of saying, no, we couldn't talk to them because an f.b.i. investigation was going on. >> well, senator, i understand your very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge qaddafi and try to give the libyan people a chance. and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen
's outgoing chairman enjoyed support, just about from everybody, and from hillary clinton and john mccain as well on his glide path towards confirmation to be secretary of state. that's the easy part. the hard part is what comes next. joining me now for our daily fix is chris caliz sxwl a and post politics.com nbc capitol hill correspondent kelly oh donnell and usa today's washington bureau chief, susan page. thanks very much. first to you. >> sure. >> john kerry has a lot -- very heavy lift to climbing budgets, climbing support for the state department. you have pakistan and afghanistan, with the drawal from afghanistan that will only make it harder, and that has impact on pakistan. china, and russia. leadership in russia, as you know, very, very complicated. where does he look first for support, and, you know, who wants this job? >> i would say the middle east -- the hard thing that you hit on is the challenges for a secretary of state and for the united states generally in foreign policy have not waned. they have probably increased. in libya and benghazi and secretary clinton tried to
is the foreign service. >> reporter: john mccain and kerry forged close bonds over vietnam. both naval officers, mccain was imprisoned. kerry returned to testify against the war in 1971. his first appearance before this committee. >> how do you ask a man to be the last man to die in vietnam? >> reporter: decades later, they united as senators to resolve p.o.w. issues and normalize relations with vietnam. >> working toward that end with john and witnessing almost daily his exemplary statesmanship is one of the highest privileges i've had here. >> reporter: today, they do have differences. mccain is more willing to arm the rebels in syria. >> i think we ought to tell the syrian people that we're either going to help them or we're not. >> if you have a complete implosion of the state, nobody has clearer definition of how you put those pieces back together. >> reporter: he and others also pressed kerry on benghazi. >> are you willing to work with me or do you basically kind of agree hillary clinton that that's kind of yesterday's news and let's move on? >> well, senator, if you're trying to get som
beloved by everyone on capitol hill. john mccain said he would endorse him. that will go through without controversy. both of these men will be confirmed easily. people think the secretary of defense choice is a signal that we will not be as aggressive as somewhat like in defending israel. host: minimum wage. do you expect those issues to gcome up>? guest: the campaign was focused on jobs. the relative lack of direct engagement with how you create jobs during the inaugural address. this was not a set of policy proposals. there will be more about this in the state of the union. it was striking that the focus of the campaign was not terribly reflected in the address he gave yesterday. as far as labor issues, a lot of this is going on in the states. there is a national political aspect to this. i do not know what plans they have for some of these issues. it was interesting yesterday that obama singled out issues like ensuring that women get equal pay as a key part of the principles he was trying to establish. host: republicans in the house and the senate, what are they saying on this? guest
this. the same kind of reaction we're seeing from john mccain because he also is close with chris stevens but he's handling it in a very different kind of way because he's -- he wants -- he's the question asker and hillary clinton is the person who just, you know, again, bears that responsibility. it is clearly weighing very heavily on her. >> secretary of state hillary clinton has taken her seat before the house foreign affairs committee. but we do now have bob bear, the former middle east field officer with us. i wanted to ask you, when do you make of the fact that it has been almost four months, actually over four months and we still don't have anybody in custody responsible for the attack in benghazi. is this a failure of intelligence gathering, a failure of the government in libya to cooperate? what are you hearing? >> well, i think it falls on the shoulders of the libyans to find these people. libya is a chaotic country right now. the attack on algeria, libya played some part -- not at the state, but groups in libya. it is hard to find people when there is no central authori
foreign policy adviser to the john mccain campaign in 2008. he is the author of a new book called "invisible armies." a little more about the faces of your book -- a little more about the thesis of your book. this idea of guerrilla warfare is not something new. guest: i exam the long history of insurgency and guerrilla warfare and it predates conventional conflicts. tribal warfare is essentially grow warfare. conventional warfare is a relatively recent invention that only our rose about 5 under years ago in mesopotamia -- 500 years ago. what was the last conventional conflict that we have seen? 2008 when russia invaded georgia. there are thousands of people dying in countries like afghanistan, a rock, syria, -- mali. these are not conventional wars . we should not be surprised it has ever been thus and it will hus.ys pabe t they are the norm. we better be ready for the kind of wars we're seeing now. we're not going to be out of the business of fighting insurgencies. host: how is the u.s. military doing? how does the military prepare itself for future wars of this kind? guest: the
